Brad McCoy joined The Flippen Group after twenty-seven years as a coach and teacher in the public school system. During this time, he gained extensive knowledge about factors that determine the success of athletic programs and developed a passion for growing athletes into great leaders.
Brad graduated from Abilene Christian University, where he played football, in 1983. He has served as an athletic director, head football coach and teacher during his career in education. His impressive overall record, along with four Texas State Championship appearances and two state titles, speak for the success of his teams. Despite his notable accomplishments in sports, he is most driven by the personal success of his athletes stating, “I want our guys to grow up and develop into fine players on the field, but more importantly, I want them to turn into great husbands, dads, business leaders, church leaders and men that make this world a better place.”
Brad employs this philosophy in his personal life as much as his professional life. He and Debra, his wife of 26 years, have raised three sons who are all high performers, both on and off the field. His oldest son, Colt, played for the University of Texas and set national records for most wins ever by a quarterback and highest completion percentage ever by a quarterback along with 47 other national, Big 12 and school records. He is currently the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. Chance, a receiver at Hardin-Simmons University, was a three-time All State receiver in high school and played for state championships in football, basketball and track. Case lead his high school team to the state championship and was named to multiple All State teams. He graduated with honors and enrolled at the University of Texas to follow in his brother’s footsteps as quarterback for the Longhorns.
Serving as a Teen Leadership teacher and consultant, Brad has been involved with the Flippen Group for over 15 years. In 2010, Brad came on full time as Athletic Director of Flippen Sports. He and Debra reside in Graham, Texas.
